Cross-Cultural Fantasy Depictions
Jason Engle Renders Mythic Imagery with Different Ethnic Groups

Fantasy illustrations often draw inspiration from the European medieval period, but Jason Engle steps outside that mold and creates characters with all kinds of global influences. Sure, he still paints the standard heavily armored European knights that fantasy fans all adore, but he’s also one of the few artists willing to render warriors inspired by samurais and Persian assassins.

Witches and warlocks also make an appearance in Engle’s work, and again, he changes things up by giving his versions of spell casters cultural aesthetics from different regions of the world. It’s refreshing to see varied ethnicity within the fantasy illustration genre.

Jason Engle currently resides in Florida and produces many of the images seen on fantasy game cards like Magic: the Gathering and Legend of the Five Rings.
